in the world the man whoso name had spread to the furthest corners of the earth because of Ids wealth and whoso money Instead of being ut blessing promised to become not only a curse to himself but It source of dire peril to all mankind wus n genius born of tho railroad age No other age could have brought him forth Ills peculiar talents titled exactly the conditions of nil time Attracted early In life to the newly discovered oil fields of Penn sylvania he became a dealer In the raw product and later a refiner ac quiring with capital laboriously saved first one refinery then another The railroads were cutting each others throats to secure the freight business of the oil mimes and John Burkett Ry dor saw his opportunity lie made secret overtures to the road guaran teeing a vHHt amount of business If he Could get exceptionally low rates and tbo illegal compact was made Ills competitors undersold In the market stood no chance and one by one they wore crushed out of existence nyderI

the com mercial world has yet known Yet with nil this success John Bur kelt Ryder wus still not content lie was now a rich man richer by man millions than he had dreamed lie cowl ever be but still he

weakness und the one the had made him the most conspicuous mUll of ills tune was an entire lack or moral principle No honost or honor able iimn could have amassed such stt pendous wealth In other words Tobn Ryder had not boon equipped by nature with a conscience He hind 110 sense of right or wrong or justice whore his own Interests were concern ed Ho was the prince of egoists On the other Ihand he possessed qunlltie which with some people count ns virtues He was pious and regular In his attendance at church and while he had done but little for charity he was known to have encouraged the glv Ing of alms by members of his family which consisted of a wife whose timid voice was rarely heard and a son Jef forson who way the destined successor of his gigantic estate Such was the man who was the rca power behind the Southern and Transcontinental railroad More than nuj one else Ryder had been aroused bj the present legal action not so much for the nionoy Interest at stake as that any one should dare to thwart his will It had been a pet scheme of his this purchase for a song when the land was cheap of some thousand acres along the line and it Is true that at the time of the purchase there had been spine Iden of laying the land out us a park but real estate values had Increased in as tonishing fashion the road could uo longer afford to carry out the original Kchomo and hind attempted to dispose of the property for building purposes Including a right of way for a branch road The news made public In the newspapers hud raised a storm of protest I The people in the vicinity claim ed tint the railroad secured the land on the express condition of a park be ing laid out and in order to make a legal test they had secured an Injunc thou which bud been sustained by Judge Rossmore of the United States circuit court These details were hastily told and retold by one clerk to another as the Label of voices In the Inner room grew louder aril more directors kept arriv ing front the ever busy elevators The meeting was lulled for 3 oclock Another live minutes nut the chairman would nip for order A tall strongly built man with white mustache and kindly smile emerged from the directory room and addressing one of the clerks asked Has Mr Ryder arrived yet Tho alacrity with which the oui ployoo hastened forward to reply would lath ate that hits interlocutor was U IHirmiu of more than ordinary Impor tanceNo Komitor not yet We expect him any minute Then with a defer ential smile he added Mr Ryder nan ally arrives on the stroke sir The senator gave u nod of acquies cence and turning on Its heel greeted with a grasp of the hand und affable tmillo hits fellow directors as they pass ed In by twos and threes Senator Roberts WUH In tho world of politick what his friend John Burkett Ryder was In the world of finance a leader of men He started life in Wis consin us un errand boy was educated In the public schools and litter became clerk In n dry goods store finally go- Ing Into business for his own account on a large scale He was elected to the legislature where his ability as an organizer soon gained the friendship of the men In lower and later was sent to congress where he was quickly Initiated In the game of corrupt poll tics In ISSTi lio entered the United States senate lIe soon became the acknowledged lender of a considerable majqrity of the Republican senators and from then on he was a figure to be reckoned with A very ambitious man with n great love of power and row scruples It is little wonder that only the practical or dishonest sldo of politics appealed to him He was In politics for mill there was In It and he IIftW In his lofty position only n splen did opportunity for easy graft He did not hesitate to make such alliances with corporate Interests seek lug Influence at Washington as would enable him to accomplish this purpose nnd In this way he hnd stet and form ed n strong friendship with John Bur kett Ryder Each being n toaster In Irma own field was useful to the other Neither was troubled with qualms of conscience so they never quarreled It Ryder interests needed anything in the senate Roberts and his followers were there to attend to It Just now the cohort was marshaled in defense of the railroads against the attacks of the new rebate bill In fact Ryder managed t to keep the senate busy all tile time When on tho other hand the senators wanted anythingand they often did Ryder saw that they got It lower rates for this one a fat job for that one not forgetting them solves Senator Roberts was already a very rich man tumid although the world often wondered where he got it no one hud the courage to ask him But the Republican lender was stir red with an ambition greater than that of controlling a majority In the senate He hud a daughter a marriageable young woman who at least in her fa thers opinion would make a desirable wife for any man His friend Ryder had a son and this son was the only heir to the greatest fortune ever amassed by one man a fortune which at its present rate of Increase by the time the father died and the young couple were ready to inherit would probably amount to over 0000000000 Could the human mind grasp the possl bilities of such n colossal fortune It stnjgored the Imagination Its owner or the man who controlled It would be master of tile world Was not this a prize any man might well set himself out to win The senator was thinking of It now us he stood exchanging banal remarks with the men who accosted him If he could only bring off that marriage he would be content The ambition of his life would be attained There was no difficulty as far us John Ryder was concerned lIe favored the match and had often spoken of it In deed Ryder desired it for such an alliance would naturally further his business Interests in every way Rob erts knew that Ills daughter Kate hind more than a liking for Ryders hand sonic young son Moreover Kate was practical like her father and had sense enough to realize what It would mean to bo the mistress of time Ryder fortune No Kate was all right but there was young Ryder to reckon with It would take two In this case to make a bargain Jefferson Ryder was In truth nn entirely different man from his father It was difficult to realize that both had sprung from the same stock A col lege bred boy with all the advantages his fathers wealth could give him he had Inherited from the parent only thoso characteristics which would have made him successful even If born poor activity pluck application dogged obstinacy alert mentality To these qualities he added what his father sorely lacked a high notion of honor a keens sense of right and wrong Ho had the honest mans contempt for meanness of any description and ho had little patience with the lax so called business morals of the day For him a dishonorable or dishonest n L It wits Join Iturhclt Ryder the Colossus action could have no apologist and he could see no difference between tlwI crime of the hungry wretch who stole u loaf of bread and the coal baron who systematically robbed both his employ ems and the public In fact had he been on the bench he would probably have acquitted the human derelict who in despair had appropriated the prime necessary of life nnd sent the overfed conscienceless coal baron to jail The hands of the large clock in time outer room pointed to 3 An active dapper little man with glasses and with books under his arm passed hur- rIedly from another office into the directors room There goes Mr Lane with the min mutes The meeting is called Wheres Mr Ryder asked one of the directors There was n general move of the scattered groups of directors toward the committee room The clock over mend began to strike The last stroke had not quite died away when the big swinging doors from the street were thrown open nnd there entered a tall thin man gray headed and with n slight stoop but ken eyed and alert He was carefully dressed In a well fit ting frock coat white waistcoat black tic and silk tint It was John Burkett Ryder the Colos Bus CHAPTER I- IPlT fiftysix John Burkett Ryder was surprisingly well preserv ed With the exception of the slight stoop already noted nnd the rapidly thinning snow white hair his step was as light and elastic nnd his brain as vigorous and alert as In a man of forty Of old English stock his physical makeup presented all those strongly marked character istics of our race which sprung from AngloSaxon ancestry but modified by nearly 300 years of different climate and customs has gradually produced the distinct nnd true American type as easily recognizable among the faro ily of nations as any other of the earths children Tall nnd distinguished looking Ryder would have attracted attention any where Men who have accomplished much in life usually bear plainly upon their persons tho Indefinable stamp of j c tichlovement wBother oT good or evil which renders them conspicuous among their fellows We turn after a man In the street and ask Who is he And nine times out of ten the object of our curiosity is d man who has made his mark n successful soldier a fa mous sailor a celebrated author a dls tinguished lawyer or even a notorious crookThere was certainly nothing in John Ryders outward appearance to justify Lombrosos sensational description of him A social and physiological freak a degenerate and n prodigy of turpitude who In the pursuit of money crushes with the Insensibility of a steel machine every one who stands In his way On the contrary Ryder outwardfy at least was a prepossess- Ing looking man His head was well shaped nnd he had an intellectual brow while power was expressed In every gesture of his hands nnd body Every Inch of him suggested strength nnd resourcefulness Ills face when in good humor frequently expanded In a pleasant smile and be had even been known to laugh boisterously usually at his own stories which he rightly considered very droll nnd of which he possessed n goodly stock But In repose Ids face grew stern and forbidding and when his prognathous Jaw indicative of will power and bull dog tenacity snapped to with a click like sound those who heard it knew that squalls were coming But it was John Ryders eyes that were regarded as the most reliable barometer of his mental condition Wonderful eyes they were strangely eloquent and expressive and their most singular feature was that they pos sessed the uncanny power of changing color like a cats When their owner was at pence with the world and had temporarily shaken off the cares of business his eyes were of the most restful beautiful blue like the sky after sunrise on a spring morning and looking Into their serene depths It seemed absurd to think that this man could ever harm a fly Ills face while under the spell of this kindly mood was so benevolent and gentle so frank and honest that you felt there was nothing in the worldpurse honor wife child that if needs be you would not Intrust to his keeping When the period of truce was ended when the plutocrat was once more ab sorbed In controlling the political as well as the commercial machinery of the nation then his eyes took on a snaklsh greenish hue and one could plainly read In them the cunning the avariciousness the meanness the in satiable thirst for gain that had made this man the most unscrupulous mon ey getter of his time but his eyes had still another color and when this last transformation took place those de pendent upon him and even his friends quaked with fear for they were his eyes of anger On these dreaded occa sions his eyes grew black as darkest night and flashed tire as lightning rends the thundercloud Almost ungov ernable fury was Indeed the weakest spot In John Ryders armor for InI these moments of appalling wrath ho was reckless of what he said or did friendship self Interest prudence all were sacrificed Such was the Colossus on whom nilI eyes were turned as he entered In stantly the conversation stopped as byI magic The directors nudged each oth er and whispered Instinctively Ryder singled out his crony Senator Roberts who advanced with effusive gesture Hello senator Youre punctual as usual Mr Ry der I never knew you to be late Ryder passed on and into the direct ors room followed by Senator Roberts and the other directors the procession being brought up by the dapper little secretary bearing the minutes With a nod here and there Ryder took his place in the chairmans sent nut rnpped for order Then at a sign from the chair the dapper little secre tary began In a monotonous voice to rend the minutes of the previous meet ingQuickly they were approved and the chairman proceeded as rapidly as pOSeI sible with tho regular business routineI Tint disposed of the meeting wasI ready for the chief business of the dayI Ryder then calmly proceeded to present the facts in the cuspISome years back the road had acIquired as nn Investment some thouI sands of acres of laud located In theI outskirts of Anbunidnlc on the lineI ot their road The land was bought heap and there had been some talkI if laying part of It out as n public nark This promise hind been made atIbe time In good faith but It was no condition of the sale If afterward wing to the rise In the value of renlI istute the road found it impossible to nrry out the original idea surely tlleyI were masters of their own property The people of Auburndnle thought dlrI ferently nnd goaded on by time localI newspapers had begun action In the courts to restrain the road from divert- Ing the land from Its alleged original purpose They had succeeded In getI ting the injunction but the road had ought It tooth and nail and flnollJI carried It to the supreme court where JUdge Rossmoro after reserving hisI opinion had finally sustained the InI junction and decided against tlie rail road That was the situation Several directors spoke the arguments of each one being merely a reiteration of those already heard Ry her did not listen to what was being said Why should he Was he not Familiar with every possible phase of the game Better than these men whoI merely talked he was planning how the railroad and all his other interests ould get rid of the troublesome Judge Rossmoro He who controlled legislatures nnd Jlctatcd to supreme court judges badI round himself powerless when each turn of the legal machinery had brought him face to faco with JudieI iossmore Suit after suit bad been decided against him and the Interests he represented und each time It was Judge Rossmoro who had handed down the decision So for years these two men had fought a silent but bitter duel In which principle on the one side and attempted corruption on the other were the gage of battle Judge Ross moro fought with the weapons which his oath und the law directed him to use Ryder with the only weapons he understood bribery and trickery And each time it had been Rossmore who had emerged triumphant Despite every maneuver Ryders experience cculd suggest notwithstanding every card that could be played to undermine his credit and reputation Judge Rossmore stood higher In the countrys confi dence than when he was first appointed So when Ryder found he could not corrupt this honest Judge with gold he decided to destroy him with calum ny No scruples embarrassed Rydnr la arriving at this determination From his point of view lip was fully justified Business Is business Ho hurts my interests therefore I remove him So lie argued and he consid ered It uo more wrong to wreck the happiness of this honorable man titan he would to have shot a burglar In self defense So having thus tran quillized his conscience he hatl gone to work IIn his usually thorough manner nud his success hind surpassed the most sanguine expectations This Is what he had done Like many of our public servants whose labors are compensated only la niggardlyI fashion by an inconsiderate country Judge Rossmore was a man of but moderate means His income as Justice of the supremo court was 12000 a year but for n man in his position having a certain appearance to keep up it little more than kept the wolf from the door lIe lived quietly but comfortably in New York with his wife and his daughter Shirley an at tractive young woman who had grad uated from Vassar and had shown a marked taste for literature The daugh ters education had cost a good deal of money and this together with life Insurance nnd other incidentals of keep ing house In New York had about tak en all he had Yet be had managed to save a little and those years when ho could put by a fifth of his salary the Judge considered himself lucky Se cretly he was proud of his compara tive poverty At least the world could never ask him where he got it Ryder was well acquainted with Judge Rossmores private means The two men had met at a dinner and al though Ryder had tried to cultivate the acquaintance he never received much encouragement Ryders son Jefferson too had met Miss Shirley Rossmore and been much attracted to her but the father having more am bitious plans for his heir quickly dis couraged all attentions In that direc tion lie himself however continued to meet the Judge casually and one evening he contrived to broach the subject of profitable Investments The Judge admitted that by careful hoard hug and much stinting he had managed to save a few thousand dollars which he was anxious to Invest In something goodQuick as the keen eyed vulture swoops down on its prey the wily financier seized the opportunity thus presented And he took so much trou ble In answering the judges Inexperi enced questions and generally made himself so agreeable that time Judge found himself regretting that he and Ryder had by force of circumstances been opposed to each other In public life so long Ryder strongly recom mended the purchase H Alaskan Min ing stock a new and booming enterprise which had lately become very active in the market Ryder said he had reasons to believe that the stock would soon advance and now there was an opportunity to get It cheap A few days after he had made the Investment the judge was surprised to receive certificates of stock for double the amount he land paid for At the same time he received a letter from tile secretary of the company explain ing that the additional stock was pool stock and not to be marketed at the present time It was in the nature of a bonus to which he was entitled as one of the early shareholders The let ter was full of verbiage and technical details of which the judge understood nothing but he thought it very liberal of the company and putting the stock away In his safe soon forgot all about It Had he been a business man he would have scented peril He would hare realized that he had now In his possession 50000 worth of stock for which he had not paid a cent and furthermore had deposited It when a reor ganization came But the judge was sincerely grateful for Ryders apparently disinterested advice and Wrote two letters to him one in which he thanked him for the trouble he had taken and another In which he asked him If he was suro the company was financially sound as the Investment he contemplated making represented all his savings He added in the second letter that he had rec- eIved stock for double tho amount of his investment and that being a per fect child In business transactions he had been unable to account for the extra 50000 worth until the secretary of the company had written him assuring him that everything was In order

vaguely that It was a 1knNorthwestern Mining company and the company to which he had Intrust ed his few thousands were one and the samo In deciding on the merits of the caso presented to him right seemed to Ijlm to be plainly with tho North western nnd he rendered a decision toIthat effect It was an Important decision involving a large sum and for a day or two It was talked about But ns it was the opinion of the most learn ed and honest Judge on the bench no line dreamed of questioning it But very soon ugly paragraphs be gun to appear In the newspapers One paper asked If it were true that Judge Rossmore owned stock In the Great Northwestern Mining company which had recently benefited so signally by his decision Interviewed by a reporter Judge Rossmore Indignantly denied being Interested in any way in tho company Thereupon the same paper returned to the attack stating that tho Judge must surely be mistaken as the records showed a sale of stock to him at the time the company was known ns the Alaskan Mining company When he read this the Judge was over whelmed It was true then They land not slandered him It was he who had lied but how innocently how Innocently His daughter Shirley who was his greatest friend and comfort was tbcnwr In Europe She had gone to the con tinent to rest after Working for months on a novel which she had Just pub lished His wife entirely without OX perlence In business matters and somewhat of an Invalid was helpless to ad vise him But to his old and tried friend exJudge Stott Judge Ross more explained the facts as they were Stott shook his head Its a conspir acylI he cried And John B Ryder Is behind it Rossmore refused to believe that any man could so deliberate ly try to encompass anothers destruction but when more newspaper stories came out he began to realize that Stott was right and that his enemies had In deed dealt him a deadly blow One newspaper boldly stated that Judge Rossmoro was down on the mining companys books for 50000 more stock than he had paid for and It went on to ask It this were payment for tho favorable decision Just rendered Ross more helpless childlike as he was In business matters now fully realized the seriousness of his position My God My Godl he cried as he bowed his head down on his desk And for a whole day he remained closeted in his library no one venturing near him As John Ryder sat there spblnxllke at the head of the directors table he reviewed all this in his mind His own part in the work was now done and well done and he had come to this meeting today to tell them of his triumph Cries of The chair The chair arose on every side Senator Roberts leaned over to Ryder and whispered something in his ear With an acquiescent gesture John Ryder tapped the table with his gave and rose to address1 his fellow direct ors Instantly the room was silent again as the tomb One might have heard a pin drop so Intense was the attention All eyes were fixed on the chairman The air Itself seemed charged with electricity that needed but a spark to set it ablaze Speaking deliberately and dispas sionately the master dissembler be ganThey had all listened carefully ho said to what had been stated by pre vious speakers The situation no doubt was very critical but they had weath Bred worse storms and he had every reason to hope they would outlive this storm It was true that public opinion was greatly incensed against the railroads and indeed against all organ ized capital and was seeking to injure them through the courts For a time this agitation would hurt business and lessen the dividends for it meant not only smaller annual earnings but that a lot of money must be spent In Wash ington The eyes of the listeners who werq hanging on every word Involuntarily turned in the direction of Senator Rob erts but the latter at that moment busily engaged in rummaging among a lot of papers seemed to have missed this significant allusion to the roads expenses In the District of Columbia Ryder continued- In his experience such waves of re form were periodical and soon wear themselves out when things go on just as they did before Much of the agitation doubtless was a strike for graft They would have to go down In their pockets he supposed and then these yellow newspapers and these yellow magazines that were barking at their heels would let them go But In regard to the particular case now at Issue this Auburndale decisionthere- had been no way of preventing It In fluence bad been used but to no ef fect The thing to do now was to pre vent any such disasters In future by removing the author of them The directors bent eagerly forward Had Ryder really got some plan up his sleeve after all1 The faces around the table looked brighter and the di rectors cleared their throats and set tled themselves down in their chairs as audiences do In the theater when the drama is reaching Its climax The board continued Ryder with Icy calmness had perhaps heard and also seen In the newspapers the stories re garding JUdge Rossmore and his al connection with the Great North Ilcged company Perhaps they had these stories It was only mtural He had not believed thorn j ilmself But

naval engineer be lieves that the limit In fie size of ocean crossing steamers has been by no means reached mill In perhaps less than twentyflve years the threeday transatlantic liner will be going some says the New York World The rate of speed will be forty miles an hour an the length of the ship 1200 feet only about 400 feet more than the length of the Lusitania and the Mauretanla The beam of the coming monster will be 125 feet and her depth eightyone feet There will be sixty boilers with 4000CO feet of heating surface and twelve smokestacks continues the engineer A special feature will lhe the extra large puinplng power with hollers and pumps located well above the water line I propose that certain compartments containing ir00 tons shall be kept full of water so that In event of ground ing they could be emptied In twelve minutes enabling the ship in most cases to float off as 2500 tons would represent one foot of water To compensate for this loss In freight space the engineer suggests an extra tax on the traveler of 25 which he would be doubtless glad to pay The chief peril In navigating this coming nmstodoulc product of mans genius would be for smaller craft which might happen to get In Its way The big ship while going at top speed would exert art energy equal to forty railroad trains or practically 3250000 foot tons The measurements of such a vessel would be Length

splurge in broad cloth suits or purchase brown stone fronts on the strength of present prospects To supplement the unfavorable conditions ap parent from personal observation among the farmers of the county comes a tale of woe from the State Commissioner of Agriculture respecting the condition of crops generally throughout the State In his report for May the Commissions says Crops of all kinds are far behind and in most cases anything but promis ing And there are no end to the rea sons for the gloomy prospectsall mor or less attributable to the backwar season What vegetation the frosts and cold damp weather failed to destroy is now coming in to serve as a good mea for the army worms and cut worms that are invading nearly every locality in the State in large numbers according to the report of the Commissioner In concluding his report the Commissioner says Muchof the cornland has not yet beOIl planted on account of too much cold and wet and many fields of the early planted had u- be planted over I The acreage compared with a fiveyea average 1 is a little short being 9fl per cent r Condition Is 711percent which Is fairly good considering the weather and worms The acreage of wheat Is 00 per cent of i0 five your average Condition Is 63 a fultlni off of several points since our May eport The out crop Is a little short In acreage and has fallen off In condition from 83 In May to 78 at

Burley and dark The scarcity and highs price ol stock pea has cut the acreage of that crop Apples promise about a third of a crop and pouches nearly a failure The berry crop promises a fair yield Gardens are backward and the cold weather gave tender vugetatlou quite a setback However it is not too late yet for the elements to redeem the past with good deeds giving us favorable weather frorr now on and thereby doing untold good to the growing crops With seasonabl e weather in the future much of the injury done can be overcome To say the least nothing accurate as to the final outcome can

AddressRev F M Thomas Owensboro The First Methodists EXPLAINS ATTITUDE Of A S of E Towards Daviess County Equity Warehouse Co Q i I want some information in regard to the standing of the members of the A S of E who were patrons of the Daviess County Equity Warehouse and who were turned out of the Green River District Does this action mean that everybody who pooled tobacco with the company are out of the Green River union and out of the American Society of Equity 3 Will you also explain why this action was taken We have worked as hard for Equity as any peo pIe ever did and before we take another step we want to know where we are going Henry L Graham Secretary Thruston Local Union No 1 R R 1 Owensboro Ky- AReplyingto 2 first The matter of the alleged Equlty warehouse and its relations to the Society has been ex plained in this paperbefore But briefly I explain again The Davieas County Equity Ware house Company or as sometimes called Home Warehouse Company is a1 corporation to receive store and market tobacco They also adopted the pledg ing plan as practiced by the A S ot E By their laws the growers who stored with them must sign their pledge in stead of the pledge of the Green River district in which district the warehouse Is situated This pledge also gave the seUihCtobacco w to the corporation or a percentage of the patrons of the warehouse also it did not conform to the rule of the district that the old crop should be sold be fore the new crop was offered The existence of this company made two factions and brought the business of marketing down to a competitive basis the very thing that the Society hopes to end On complaint of the Green River District union a trial of the case was held before the Board of Directors of the A S of E Depart ment of Tobacco Growers last December The fining was against the company and it was ordered that contracts then made should not be interfered with but that before any more contracts were solicited if they desired to be consid ered an Equity warehouse they must conform to the laws and rules of the Society and particularly of the district in which situated This finding wasI accepted by tbe company The time came to make pledges of the 1907 crop and the company proceeded or moved to proceed on the old lines and because of this the action to tarn them out of the district union and not recognize them as an Equity warehouse which is embraced in the following resolutionWe committee respectfully re port that after a complete consideration of the position and proposition of the Board of Directors of the Home Ware house Company we were unable to reach any agreement satisfactory to your committee and said board W therefore recommend that the people composing the Home Warehouse Copt pany take no further partin the meet ing of the Green River District Tobacco Growers Association of the A S of EJJ == until such time as the Board of Direc tors of said Home Warehouse Company agree to abide by the constitution and bylaws of the Tobacco Growers As sociation of the A S of E The report was adopted 1 The stranding of the members of the A S of Ewbo pooled with the warehouse company in the past la not affeoted but they must understand that Ifthey continue unlawfully pledging pooling or marketing through the in dependent company they will forfeit their membership in the American So ciety of Equity The staid taken by the Society is not against home storing and financing as the Society stands committed to this in preference to foreign storing where ouditions are equal But iU is to estab fish and mtintain the true fundamental principles of the A S of E on which farmers must stand or go back to the cold bad competitive system STEPHENSPORT STEPHENSPORT KY Rev J W Hughes and wife of Klngswood college were

ENDURANCE How He Made the Long Distance Speaking Record Sample of His Ability as an AdvocateLoved to JokeHow He Named a Street Six years ago Just as the FIftysev enth congress was passing Into history Alabamas veteran statesman tho late Senator John Tyler Morgan made the long distance speaking record forced an extraordinary session of the senate and killed the asset currency bill of Senator Aldrich who In these lust hours of congress shared the leader ship with Senator Hale says the New York Tribune It was tb j last night except one of a rather eventful session Senator Morgan had been speaking ill most every day for two weeps on thi question of an isthmian canal It was estimated at the time by close observ era and the senate stenographers that altogether be had spoken more than 200000 words on this one topic Hour after hour ho held the floor and when he had dicumonts to be load he rood thorn himself Instead of sending them to the clerk It was thought that ho would never stop on the canal and that be could not possibly have anything to say on any other measure especial Ily one so intricate as the Aldrich flnau clal bill On another occasion Senator Cullom as chairman of the foreign relations committee was anxious to get a vote on certain amendments to n treaty and Insisted on a night session Mr Mor gan had the floor and yieldedl for are cess He resumed at the night session and spoke on for two or three hours Mr Cullom meanwhile keeping his sent because he felt responsible for forcing the senate to return lute at night Shortly after midnight Mr Morgan glanced across the aisle and saw Mr Cullom asleep In his seat Senator Morgan paused for some time and finally silence Itself woke Mr Cullom The whole senate broke Into laughter In which Mr Morgan participated He then proceeded with his speech until Mr Cullom WitS forced to move an ad journmentThis endurance of the Ala bums senator Is nil the more remark able when It Is considered that bo was feeble In early life and his disabilities were a great trial to him during his army career They tell to this day In Alabama this story to illustrate Mr Morgans ability as an advocate says the New York HeraldA of well known thieving pro clivities was on trial for stealing a mute Mr Morgan defended and clear ed him As lawyer and client were walking out of the courtroom Mr Mor gan said Rastus did you steal that mule Well Marse Morgan It was Jest like this I really thought I did steal dat mule but after what you said to de Jury I was convince I didnt It Is not generally known perhaps that Senator Morgan was once threatened with arrest for alleged complicity In tile assassination of Lincoln says the Washington Post Of course Senator Morgan was not only Innocent but actually did not hear of Lincolns death until a week utter It had occurred lIe was then a farmer In Dallas county his practice of law having been prohibited by the federal authorities and he was plow- Ing corn when he hoard that an order had been received by General McAr thur at Selma to arrest him and send him to Washington for complicity In the Lincoln assassination Senator Morgan went Into his house attired himself In Lila Confederate generals uniform with starred epaulets belt sword and other accouterments com plete Tben he saddled his plow horse and rode to Selma where ho presented himself to General McArthur Good morning general he said Good morning general replied McArthur recognizing Morgans rank For what am I indebted for this visit U I have come to bo sent to Wash ington remarked Morgan I under stand you have an order to send me thereGeneral McArthur expressed surprise to learn that the existence of tho order was known and smiled when General Morgan told him that exConfederates had not lost their habit of acquiring In formation Then he remarked that tho order would not be obeyedor at least not until there had been a reasonable delay This did not suit Morgan who wanted to go to Washington to present some claims for destroyed cotton anti was quite willing to travel at govern ment expense- I want to make one request of you said Morgan When I went Into tho war I had 15000 In gold In a bank in Selma When I came back from the war I found that my gold bad given place to 15000 In Confederate money With that 15000 I bought half a box of tobacco With some of the tobacco I secured coffee and sugar and shoes for my family and the rest of It went for seventeen sboats I kept those ats until they were fat enough to kill1 and now I have more meat than any other man in Dallas county When I go to Washington general I want you to put a guard around my smoke houseGeneral replied McArthur laugh Ipgly you bad better go homo and guard the smokehouse yourself and by tho way he added the restriction r n against your practice of the law wll I be removed Senator Morgan went back to his family and his plow and he never heard anything further of the order Senator Morgan was as courteous as he was able In debate and always lov ed n joke In the old days ho liked nothing better than to Toss swords with the late Senator Hoar says the St Louis Republic On ono occasion Mr Hoar was urg ing an Important fishery bill In which the people of Now England wore Inter ested Mr Morgan opposed It vigorously and at the end of his speech Senator Hoar sarcastically inquired What do trio people of Alabama know about codfish anyway So much replied Senator Morgan quickly and with the keenest of smiles that If the senator from Massachu setts should throw a codfish Into a ten acre field of people iii Alabama It would disperse thorn to a man and at once Senator Morgan win was one of the great orators of the upper house spent only three years In school and those In his early childhood says a eorre spondent of the Plttsburg Dlipatcb From IIJ to 0 years of age embraced his entire academic training and the most that he learned hi that brief schooling was Latin In tthat one branch he wa thoroughly grounded thanks also to private Instruction and to It he at tributed his remarkably romly command of the English tongue In long drnwirout debates On every public question ho discussed and they were numerous John T Morgan was perhaps the boat Informed mUll in congress While other legisla tive obstructionists could talk and talk to consume time all the while saying nothing Morgans speeches without a book or a scrap of paper to jog his memory were lpacked full of Informa tion his facts marshaled with consum mate skill When the question of Ha waiian annexation was suddenly sprun upon the country toward the close o Benjamin Harrisons administration Morgan knew more about the Islands than any man In Washington When Morgan was In Paris as a member of the Bering sea commission Lord Ilanncu Impressed by tic Ala bamlans marvelous grasp of public questions asked him of what university he was a graduat- eI never saw the Inside of a lint versity was the reply- I beg your pardon rejoined his lordship Of course not all of your Institutions of learning are called unl versities But what college did you attend what was your alma mater Imagine Lord Hannons amazement when Informed that three short rsof In a primary school was the nearest Morgan ewer had to a college training Neither was Morgan a bookworm As a reader he was not remarkable The secret of his learning was his memory What he read If It amount ed to anything stuck like a bur Ho thought more than he read and what ever he studied he mastered Senator Morgan lived In an old fash toned house In John Marshall place In Washington The name of that street gives an Index to Mr Morgans char acter writes a Washington correspondent of the Chicago Inter Ocean It used to be Four and a Half street which name Mr Morgan contended and reasonably was too long too clum sy and absurd lIe picked out John Marshall tho expounder of the consti tution as a fit person to be honored by having n street named after him and he selwted his own street as the proper street to carry the name Patiently year after year life worked with the district commissioners to have the name of the street changed Con tinued rebuffs did not bother him Finally the commissioners changed the name of the block In which Senator Morgans house stood to John Marshall place Jjbe senator smiled and passed on to something else It hall taken him some years to win but he had won i Mr Morgans wonderful ability to grasp a subject In short time was Illustrated a few years ago when ho was employed to make an argument In a case Involving a patent for a mowing machine says the Philadelphia Press The client was desperate and ho em ployed Senator Morgan on a friends advice giving the senator only six hours In which to prepare Mr Mor gans argument astounded tho court and almost paralyzed his client so comprehensive and accurate was his knowledge of the details of mechanics us applied to that particular mowing machine Lumber Possibilities In Peru Strange as It may seem says Dally Consular and Trade Reports the Unit ed States with Its rapidly decreasing lumber supply furnishes annually thousands of feet of lumber for the Amazon valley Itself rich In untold miles of
